Welcome to the University of Colorado School of Medicine Anesthesiologist Assistant (AA) Program. Matriculating our first class in the fall of 2013, we officially became the 9th program of its kind in the United States, and are excited for the opportunity to contribute to a growing field of healthcare providers.

Please take a moment to explore our website and learn a more about our program, its faculty, and our current students. You’ll find that the CU AA Program is unique in that it is has a core curriculum taught by a variety of practicing Anesthesia providers that include MDs, AAs, and CRNAs; it offers access to world-class clinical facilities and simulation laboratories'; and is housed within the top academic healthcare center in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Because the CU AA Program is housed on the Anschutz Medical Campus with walking-distance access to both University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado, we are able to offer 28 months of intensive didactic curricula designed by expert faculty, and complemented by clinical rotations through a variety of subspecialties, including pediatrics, trauma, orthopedics, regional anesthesia, neuro and OB. In addition to the offerings immediately available on campus, top-performing students will have the chance during their second year to rotate in clinical settings all along the Front Range.

Thank you for visiting our website. We truly appreciate your interest in our program and welcome you to contact us with any questions or suggestions you may have.
